malecón 2000

• 18 comments •


Besides being a gateway to the Galapagos Islands, Guayaquil is also the major port of the Guayas River. Despite sounding like a robot from a bad 60's sci-fi movie, the Malecón 2000 is an extensive boardwalk built along the river, featuring shopping malls, museums, and other attractions.






Guayaquil isn't normally on the tourist radar, it usually gets skipped in favour of Quito, but the boardwalk, parks, and restaurants make the city interesting enough to explore for a few days.

  11. Alex, are you trying to look all "minor character in background of cop show" with all the squinting, or is it just because you're not wearing sunglasses?

  18. bethandben - Sadly, we have had to restrain ourselves and haven't been buying anything to send home because 1) we sold out house so we have no where to put it and 2) postage and souvenirs can get ridiculously expensive.

    Sam - Marilyn Monroe is hot.

    liso - We're not sure if we're going to Victoria Falls yet. Cape Town has been amazing though and when you read our posts, feel free to email us with any questions!

    Michaela - So glad you enjoyed the tea from the David Rio giveaway!
